Overview

  • Hundreds of photos of Tiger tanks in action
  • Text chronicles the unit's combat operations in the East and West
  • Personal accounts from the men who rode in these battlefield behemoths

This book tells--with firsthand accounts as well as numerous, never-before-seen photographs--the combat history of German Tiger Tank Battalion 503, the senior Tiger battalion of the German Army, equipped with both the Tiger I and the King Tiger. The unit saw action in the attempted relief of Stalingrad, the tremendous tank engagements at Kursk, and the bitter fighting to relieve German unit encircled at the Tscherkassy Pocket. It then defended against the Allies in Normandy in 1944, and ended the war with desperate fighting in Hungary and Austria.

    Very detailed account

    This book has a ton of great pictures of life in a Tiger tank battalion. There are descriptions of daily routines as well as different battles they were engaged in. A lot of the book is actually daily journal entries kept by the 503rd Tiger tank battalion. There are also descriptions of battles by different members of the Battalion who authored the book. I really enjoyed this book and learned a lot about the strenghts and weaknesses of the Tiger. I actually found an autographed photo of one of the authors on e-bay which I used as a book mark.
